    Yeah I think I'm gonna do that.  I suppose the dims will change somewhat after getting squeezed on the rim.

      Yes, the 240 will give you considerably more mileage than the 250.

      I tried the search function and didn't find anything.

      Does anyone have the OD for the OEM Metzeler me880 (210 40r18). I hit their website and didn't find any specs. Just wondering how much bigger the 240s are than the stock tire as I'm kicking around lowering my Raider with an adjustable kit.

      Thanks. I understand it wouldn't be a problem. I asked because I hoped to use an adjustable kit and simply lower the bike the same amount I gained in tire height or a little more. I think about an inch will do.

      In any event, much of the info here has changed. Many of the tires are changing Metz 880 is now the 888 ultra. The Avon Cobra is now the Cobra Chrome, etc. I wonder if anyone has mounted any of the newer offerings, and if so wondering if the dimensions are the exact same.

      You can adjust your preload some and get a little drop in the rear .
